The best trail running in Jefferson County. It's a beast of a trail if you aren't prepared, but so much fun. Like other folks say, have a car parked at Scott's Gap unless you want to do the whole thing twice (which I'll be doing soon). The hills aren't entirely runnable but unlike Scotts Gap you do have some space for recovery between the big climbs and fast descents. I would suggest taking it easy on the first hill lest you burn all your juice up in the first mile or so.

Nice little shaded trail that's good for July running. However it's more of a trail that's better for distance than pace, since there are some parts that force you to stop and walk.

Beautiful trail with some great climbs. Spot on at 2,850 ft of elevation gain. Lots of cover from the sun, made for a beautiful morning run. Ran the full out and back 13 in 2h30m, but she'll crush you! Lots of hikers but they all were very nice and moved off the trail for passing.

I ran this last week. It took me a bit over 2 hours and 15 min, but make no mistake, this is a HIKING trail. From the welcome center to the turn around post, just past the power lines at Scott's Gap Rd, is 6.7 miles for 13.4 total mileage. This is not for an average runner or hiker to go out on a whim and try. Know your limits, share the trail

Nice hike but tough. Make sure you have a car waiting if you're not making the six mile trek back to your car. Also warning if you're planning on calling a ride back to your car at the visitors center, be aware that If you end your hike at scotts gap there is absolutely no cell reception!!! So just tell them to meet you there in about 3 hours (one way).

GO PREPARED
If not you will be sucking at life!!!
